Guide ?? Pompeii

I’m planning to go to Pompeii by a self drive car ...

And I’m wondering if there is any tickets can be purchased with a guide there or online ??

The only one that I found is :

1- skip the line with no guide

2- hotel transportation with guide

Both dose not suit me

There are guides at the excavation, and you can also join a guided group tour

Absolutely no need to book anything ahead. Guides will approach you when you are queuing to purchase your entry ticket and if you can join a small group and pay approximately an additional 10-15 euros.

We walked up to the Scavi entrance, bought tickets and went in. You can rent an audio guide, as another option. We downloaded the Rick Steve's audio tour, which has a written transcript and maps. We used that as our way around and then made our way down to the ampitheatre and the necropolis (it was so peaceful on the backside of the city... very few tourists!). When we got to the body casts, there was literally NO ONE there! I figured this area would have been inundated with people!! Nope... we had the whole exhibit to ourselves.

We like and prefer non-guided tours and to go it on our own at our pace.

No need to book ahead of time take a guide at the site when you arrive.
